Buckhead breakfast favorite Joy Cafe is leaving the neighborhood. The five-year-old restaurant has confirmed it will close up shop and relocate in Midtown, reports the Atlanta Business Chronicle. The new address will allow Joy Cafe to roughly double in size and offer al fresco dining on a large patio.
Joy Beber, co-owner and namesake of the restaurant, told the ABC she and her husband have to vacate their current space at 316 Pharr Rd. NE because it's going to be razed as part of a redevelopment project. The Bebers were hoping to stay in Buckhead, but they reportedly were discouraged by high rent prices in the neighborhood. Instead, they'll move into a space on Peachtree Street, adjacent to Oceanaire Seafood Room. The move could be completed by October, according to the ABC.
The Berbers first opened Joy Cafe in 2011. Their new restaurant reportedly will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and late-night, and it will add a selection of "twists on classic cocktails."
